My name is Julie and I teach 4th grade to the Maple Class.
I grew up in Atlanta, Georgia but always knew I wanted to live out West. Shortly after graduating from the University of Georgia I moved to Utah to join the Utah Conservation Corps and work in the canyons of Escalante.
From there I continued a path in conservation, outdoor education, and travel throughout the West and internationally. I taught children how to ski in California, guided teenagers on therapeutic quests through the Utah desert, taught English in Peru, and led students in Peru and Southeast Asia on service projects.
Two years ago, when I was looking for my next adventure, I came across our school and Waldorf Education. I remember stepping through the doors and feeling like I had found a home. Everything about Waldorf Education fit my values and passions; a whole new world had opened up to me. It has allowed me the wonderful opportunity to incorporate nature, art, and working with children into my daily life.
